I grew up around good people like this man. This video reminds us of the hope and simple goodness in honest, hard-working people; qualities that unite us.
In contrast, the McCain-Palin campaign centers around issues that divide us. United we stand; divided, we fall. Instead of addressing our problems, McCain and Palin flail from subject to subject. If they're not speculating wildly about socialism, communism and changing the Constitution, they're lying about Sen. Obama's positions. These tactics are of course, attempts to change the conversation, smokescreens for McCain's lack of ideas for the economy and the myriad difficult issues America faces. On Tuesday, McCain's economic adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin admitted Obama's health care plan was better for consumers than McCain's proposal.
A good example of the differences in philosophy between the presidential candidates is that when it rained Tuesday in Pennsylvania, Sen. Barack Obama stood in the cold and pouring rain - without a hat or umbrella - and spoke from the heart to 9,000 supporters about issues that matter. Sen. John McCain cancelled his rally, due to the weather.
If you have any questions or doubts about who's the better man to lead the country, watch Sen. Obama's speech tonight on your local television station or cable channel. If you missed it, see it online here and various sources.
